    Tulsi Gabbard says she will skip the December Democratic debate

    "Gabbard has been critical of the Democratic National Committee throughout her campaign, and even threatened to boycott October's DNC debate, before deciding to join.

    The Hawaii representative then, without evidence, claimed that the DNC and corporate media were trying to "hijack the election."

    Gabbard has continually criticized the DNC for its debate qualification criteria, including the fact that it only recognizes certain pollsters as counting toward the minimum polling threshold. "

    My respect for her grows daily.

    If she's not on the primary ballot here, I'll write her in.

    I'm not exactly sure what the hell she's doing, but it's interesting to watch.

    Ground game is definitely where you wanna focus your efforts. No doubt about it. And she's getting way, way more attention with all of the online stuff she's doing, podcasts and whatnot.

    Three minutes of loaded speaking time in a debate that garners less than a million viewers is a waste of time.

    What she's doing is getting a head start on the 2024. It's clear. Watch out. Reason I say that is because she isn't the only one. There's still another party with a rigged nomination process to conquer. Remember?

    I have never gave a politician a single dime (I did buy a t-shirt off a friend of mine running for office once). I have sent her money to make sure she met the qualifications of the debates.

    At this point it's her, Bernie or third party and no one from Russia has twisted my arm to make me come to that conclusion.

    If somehow beyond all that is sane, Hillary jumps in and wins, I will vote a straight (R) ticket.

    The endless war profiteering cabal will target her until the bitter end.

    She is the ONLY Democrat Candidate I can actually tolerate and listen to what she has to say.

    Why do I need to give my money to anyone? If we do not have to pay for bail outs and bombs, we do not have to pay for anything.
